Party truck!

We had a new client meeting tonight, the bride is exploring food tucks as a catering option. The venue that has been secured is perfect and I almost jumped out of my seat. I love this idea!!! It’s fun, interactive and give the guest options from food. There is a great resource to help locate and contract food trucks!

A little lesson on traditions: Wedding Traditions: Meaning of “Something Old, Something New…”?

Q.
What is the meaning of “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue”?

A.
This tradition comes from an Old English rhyme (“Something Olde, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue, A Sixpence in your Shoe”), and the four objects that the bride adds to her wedding outfit or carries with her on the big day are just good luck charms. Don’t stress too much about them — they are the little tokens of love your mother, sister, other relatives, and attendants will give you at the eleventh hour (although you can give them to yourself, too). Something old represents continuity; something new offers optimism for the future; something borrowed symbolizes borrowed happiness; something blue stands for purity, love, and fidelity; and a sixpence in your shoe is a wish for good fortune and prosperity, although this remains largely a British custom.

Loan Oak Barn

We have been hearing a lot of hype about this new wedding venue in Round Rock, so we had to see it for ourselves. Loan Oak Barn! WOW, this is not your typical barn.

Website: http://loneoakbarn.com/
Open House: http://loneoakbarn.com/open-house/

This barn has it all. This is the most well though-out wedding venue that we have seen in a long time. If you are looking for a rustic elegant venue to host your event you need to see the Loan Oak Bar.

From the exquisitely decorated brides dressing room to the clean lines of the Gand and South Halls, there is plenty of work space in the kitchen, the grounds are just beautiful.

Bridesmaids Dresses!

Wow, that is a topic. Everyone in your wedding party will have any opinion as to what bridesmaid dress you should pick.

We will start with traditional – all the same color, all the same style.
– my only beef with this view point is how many of you sisters/cousins/girlfriends look good in the same style of dress non less the same color.

Next we have the twist on traditional – where you have all the same color and the. Same length skirt but the top portion of the dress is different, one, might be strapless or halter or one shoulder.

Then there are more modern options of either everyone selects a dress from a certain color or color family. My suggestion if you are going this route is to either pick a color that is easy to find like black or pick a color family.

What we are seeing trend now is the mix matched bridesmaids, which by the way I am LOVING, there are however tips and tricks to making the complete look!
